John Lennon’s solo albums are being remastered for a new nine-LP vinyl box set called Lennon.
Each record has been remastered from its original analogue master, according to Rolling Stone, and has been cut to 180-gram vinyl from an ultra-high-res digital file and packaged in artwork that faithfully replicates its original UK release.
The eight-album box set will come out on June 9, while individual copies of the albums will come out on August 21. Most of the albums are currently out of print on the vinyl format.
The records included in the box set are John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, Imagine (complete with the two postcards and poster it came with originally), Some Time in New York City (with its original postcard), Mind Games, Walls and Bridges (with fold-over flaps and an eight-page booklet), Rock ‘n’ Roll, Double Fantasy and Milk and Honey. The LPs are collected in a rigid slipcase box.
Lennon’s wife Yoko Ono and engineers at Abbey Road Studios and New York’s Avatar Studios remastered the records from Lennon’s original mixes in 2010. The new vinyl masters were cut at Abbey Road.
